Quality Xbox Live games have made a return this week with the release of Gravity Guy. What else have we come to expect from Mini-Clip games than excellence? With single, multi-player, unlimited and story mode this game has plenty to offer it purchasers.
Gravity Guy is a game simply based on getting as far as you can into a level. The farther that you get, the more points you get and the more likely you are to get on the top of that fabulous leaderboard. Who doesn’t like to be number one at something right?
The game play is honestly a bit hard to put into words, but I’m going to try. Essentially your character runs through a level that progressively gets faster and more difficult. As obstacles get in your way you ‘jump’ to change the orientation to gravity that your character has. Your character moves from the floor to the ceiling in an attempt to continue progressing through the level.
The two game play modes are different enough to justify having both of them. Story mode is pretty self explanatory, the main difference between story mode and endless is simply that you have points in story mode that you complete the level and therefore slow down to your original speed, whereas endless is…..well, endless. It will last as long as you survive.
This game is pleasing to not just the ear but the eye as well. Sound effects and music is great not to mention the graphics are on par other high quality titles in the marketplace. Lasting value is decent and it truly is worthy of the XBox Live title it carries. Not like others we’ve seen in the past…..(cough)Fight Game(cough)……
The only part of this game that I feel has a little bit to be desired is the multi-player function. Because it isn’t online it really tends to get lost in translation. It isn’t realistic to think that, unless you can pass a phone back and forth to take turns, a multi-player game on a phone is really worth. While the idea of 4 person multi-player is intriguing it tends to get lost amongst your friends or family members fingers getting in the way of what is actually happening on the screen. Or maybe that’s why they’re going to start making phones with 4.7 inch screens. In either case, check it out on the marketplace, it’s well worth the single player option.
